Pepijn van den Nieuwendijk
‘Dutch Settlement’ exhibition showcases a series of guache on paper inspired by the historic event in the 17th Century when Dutch people emigrated from the Netherlands to Asia, the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and all around the world since then.  After World War II, the first large group of Dutch immigrants settled in Canada and the United States. Most of them were farmers and hardworking Christians. They were living their typical Dutch lives which they lived for centuries in the Dutch countryside. They took the typical Dutch habits, morals and standards with them to Canada and the United States. Although they lived aboard, they kept holding on to their traditions very tightly.

Visually inspired by Blue and White Delftware ceramics, Pepijn van den Nieuwendijk shows cliché depiction of old fashioned Dutch immigrants in a tragically humorous way with a surrealistic touch. His works portray Dutch nostalgia shown through traditional decorative elements.

“I gave them a bit of 1900's atmosphere because in that period there was a revival of traditional Dutch culture costume especially in advertising that had much influence on how tourists visiting the Netherlands saw Dutch life in Dutch tourist villages like Volendam,” said Pepjin van den Nieuwendijk.
